The Polypectomy Snare is a medical instrument used in clinical polypectomy operations. Polypectomy is a process of removing polyps which is usually carried out in the healthcare facility. The polyps develop in the tissue and spread into the hollow space. Also, there are other traditional ways to remove polyps such as cold forceps polypectomy and hot forceps polypectomy. In the cold forceps polypectomy, cold forceps are used to remove the polyps that stretch out of the tissue. In the hot forceps, polypectomy is similar to cold forceps polypectomy but applies diathermy to ablate residual polyp tissue through the forceps. However, with the rising technological differences, the adoption of polypectomy snares has increased. The increasing number of colon and uterine polypectomies and rising demand for CRC screening are the major factors driving the market growth. CRC screening is used to identify and remove polyps. Currently, colon and endometrial polyps are common health issues and are proliferating.
Moreover, a rising preference for minimally invasive surgeries is also anticipated to boost the demand for polypectomy snares across the globe. The polypectomy snare is a wire loop mainly designed to remove the polyp by slipping over it. Additionally, growing strategic mergers and acquisitions among the key players operating in the market, rising health care expenditure is likely to propel the market growth in the near future.
The Polypectomy Snare Market is a segment based on product type, end-user, and geography. In terms of product type, the global market is segregated into single-use polypectomy snares and reusable polypectomy snares. In 2019, the single-use polypectomy segment is estimated to account for the significant share of the global polypectomy snares market. The demand for polypectomy snares is shifting towards single-use polypectomy from reusable. Several healthcare facilities are using single-use polypectomy snares because this type of snares is more convenient and minimize the risk of biological cross-contamination. However, the medical sector in Europe uses reusable devices to reduce the healthcare costs. Therefore, these factors are expected to overall market growth of the polypectomy snares.
Based on the end-user, the market is segmented into hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, and specialty clinics. In 2019, the hospital's segment is estimated to account for the largest share in the global market. A large number of polypectomy procedures is carried out in hospitals which are further projected to propel the growth of the segment in the global market. The surging colon and uterine polypectomy procedures is likely to increase the application of polypectomy snares in hospitals. Moreover, the ambulatory surgical center is anticipated to grow significantly in the forecast period. The large units of polypectomy snares are sold to ASCs.
Geographically, the Global Polypectomy Snare Market has been segmented into North America, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. In terms of revenue, North America is anticipated to account for the largest share in the global polypectomy snare market in 2019. The rising preference for minimally invasive surgeries and a large number of surgeries carried out in the U.S. is projected to boost the market growth significantly within the region. Moreover, in the U.S., the favorable reimbursement scenario is also estimated to increase the demand for healthcare devices, thereby propelling the adoption of polypectomy snare. Additionally, the presence of well-established manufacturers and quality healthcare facilities are expected to upsurge the demand for the polypectomy snare market in North America.
